When Tom saved Frankie the goldfish from near death (by zapping him with a battery), Frankie somehow became a big fat zombie goldfish with hypnotic powers. Now Frankie is one lethal fish with a mind of his own (good job Frankie has appointed himself as Tom’s bodyguard).

My 8-year old daughter and I read this during our before bedtime reading. We both enjoyed it. You actually get 2 stories in one book. We liked the first story about the eel and the lighthouse the best. The second story about the Robin Hood play was good too. We will read more books in this series about Frankie the Zombie Goldfish.

pradeep and tom went on a trip to a lighthouse that was about 5 hours away and along the way pradeep had threw up in "Big Barf Bag" that his mom got off the internet.

Sammi who was hypnotized in the last story had got the cooler open and then said "Swishy little fishy" and her dad who was coming along for the trip had heard her and he said "what was that honey" but thankfully tom had covered for her and told her dad that she was just excited to see a ...more

Have you read the first book? Please read the first book. This book is a continue of the first book. The zombie goes crazy. Mark the evil scientist made a normal goldfish into a zombie goldfish. I love this book. Now the zombie goldfish does revenge. Read this book.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars. I really wanted to give this book 4 stars, but I think the "Robin Hood" story is the weakest one we've seen. O'Hara's writing is still great, though. She manages to write for kids, not down to them. And Frankie is still awesome, of course.

This book will seriously build a suspence on you while reading. In the story Mo o'hara explains the theme across the whole story. The theme of this story is not all friemds will be with you at all times.
In the beggining of the story they were all together and the older brother was a evil scientist but then later on in the story the brother will do a expirement on his friend which turned him into a zombie.
this is an amazing book and all of you should read it now.

It defenetly was not my favorite book but I really liked it. I would recommend this book to about 4th or 5th grade readers. My favorite character was Frankie for sure because of how he protects them from Mark and his evil plans.

OMG I love this series so freaking much! Just the right amount of humour and life lessons. The physical book has some illustrations in it, but the audio was super enjoyable and I could picture everything in my mind.

Lol fun. I picked this out for my advanced six year old and he never wanted to put it down. We started with the 2nd book during a tonsillectomy and are back for the whole series. There are times he would giggle and laugh hysterically..i love that the most.

Traits: Voice - This book is written in a strong voice from the narrator. He takes ownership of the activity around him. The book explores a relationship between a boy, his pet zombie goldfish and their plans to try and thwart his brother's evil scientific plans.

I picked up this novel because I noticed that it was one of the books that boys were continually coming back to time after time. W

The second book in this series, this time our two stories are about a vacation trip and a play at school. Of course, as you can imagine, when you have a pet like Frankie nothing in your life will be normal.

The first story is about Tom, Pradeep, Mark, Sami and their dads are going on a small vacation trip to fish. Like we know from the previous book, no day is the same with these kids. Mark is still trying to become an evil scientist and he has a new goal in the first story.
I absolutely loved the

This book contains two different stories. In the first one, Tom's family takes a vacation to the ocean, and he brings along his zombie goldfish, Frankie. But his big brother Mark has plans to create a zombie eel while they are spending time at the ocean. The second story features Mark in the role of spoiler during the school play. Young readers are likely to enjoy the humor and references to zombies as well as the interplay between the siblings, but I found it rather tiresome after a certain poi ...more

Okay, I liked the second book better than the first. I was hesitant to read the second, as the first was a bit "ho-hum" for me. The writing style saw definite improvement: "There was something not right. A funny feeling in my stomach. As if a load of millipedes were having a fight scene of their own in there." (p 162) The plot moved right along, I found myself rooting for the main character, and I even found some funny moments to enjoy.

So... if you are one of those people (like me) who thinks th

The kids are already nuts about nature (we own a organic farm) & zombies (who isn't?) making Frankie the Zombie Goldfish the next best thing since homemade hot out of the oven brownies. The illustrations are beyond funny & always get a lot of laughs. The text is large making it easy for them to read on their own although they prefer to be read to out loud. Needless to say since Frankie arrived the kids can't stay out of the pond imagining finding their very own zombie goldfish!
